6 Things to do in Cambridge for a 2019 Valentine


Sure, Valentine’s day gets a lot of heat (pun intended) for being a sensationalized holiday. In many ways, it can be. But any day to show a friend, significant other, or yourself some love is a good one!

6 Things to do in Cambridge for a 2019 Valentine

  • Visit the home of a famous 19th century poet

The Longfellow House is a historic site located in Cambridge, MA which was Henry Longfellow’s home for 45 years. Take a tour inside or explore the gardens.

  • Eat chocolate

We love to remind people to shop local. Don’t forget to get your sweets local too. Tazo Chocolate offer yummy treats (and tours) sure to bring a smile to someone’s face.

  • See a show

Instead of dinner and a movie, how about dinner and performing arts? See a show at Central Square Theater and grab a cocktail at La Fabrica next door while you’re there!

  • Write a love note

In the age of texts, social media, and emails, it’s still nice to get a hand written note. Fine unique cards at Black Ink, right in Harvard Square.

  • Watch the sunset along the Charles River

Walking along the Charles River is a must for Cambridge Visitors. If you go at sunset, you might be lucky enough to see multi-colored skies followed by the twinkling of the Boston skyline!

  • Try a new bottle of wine

Trying new things is a great part of life and Central Bottle Wine is always happy to help you find the perfect pairing for you.
